Farmers' Markets Ontario - Come for the freshness... Stay for the fun Farmers' Markets Ontario
Farmers' Markets Ontario

Welcome to the official website
of Ontario farmers’ markets

Farmers’ markets in Ontario are booming—and no wonder!

Shoppers love them because they can buy top-quality farm-fresh products directly from the person who produced them—and can often find products they won’t find anywhere else.

Communities love them because they bring people together and can turn once-deserted areas into hives of activity, attracting extra business for stores and restaurants nearby.

Farmers love them because they’re fun and let them connect with consumers who love what they sell and appreciate their hard work. They’re also an important source of income, helping farmers keep on doing what they love to do, so that Ontarians can keep on enjoying fresh local food.

We hope you find everything you’re looking for on our site today. See you soon—at the market!
